Organ Donation Opt Out

Organ donation in England has changed to an ‘opt out’ system.

This means that if you are not in an excluded group, and have not confirmed whether you want to be an organ donor – either by recording a decision on the NHS Organ Donor Register, or by speaking to friends and family – it will be considered that you agree to donate your organs when you die.

You still have a choice about whether or not you wish to become a donor and your faith, beliefs and culture will continue to be respected. Get the facts about organ donation to help you decide.
